Ideally placed for a meal after (or before) the Puccini concerts. Good wine, good food, good service

I stopped in twice for pre-opera drinks and they were most accommodating and kind. I only wish I had eaten here! The next time I visit Lucca, I will definitely go back.

We started stopping here since the first week it opened. It is a must every time we come. Carole and Lars are wonderful people.

Carol welcomes all to her wonderful restaurant near the Cathedral of St Martin. Enjoy the flight of wine with the wonderful bread, cheese plate, or desert. Very knowledgeable about the local vineyards and goes beyond if you want to extend the adventure by helping book a private tour.

We first experienced this enoteca by using their bathroom! Crazy way to write a review and to experience a place. The concert venue right across the piazza has no facilities and the restaurant was gracious in letting us use their facility. After the concert we decided to go there since it was close to the train station and had been... More

Enoteca Calasto is located across the piazza from the Pucinni concerts. Their house wine is delicious as is their food. This is a great place to have a snack or dinner with your wine either before or after the concert. The staff is so nice and one waitress has been selected to perform in the Pucinni concerts beginning in October.... More

On a day trip in Lucca we came across this restaurant with small outside seating area. We only needed a snack but our Panini and drinks were excellent and the owner friendly and professional. We were disappointed not to be in the area longer as it would have been nice to return in the evening.

We discovered Lars and Enoteca Calasto during a day trip to Lucca. The wine shop is in a central, but quiet location of beautiful Lucca. Lars is extremely knowledgeable on the local wines because of the wine book he wrote on the area. He selected 6 of his favorite local wines for us to enjoy during the rest of our... More
